Activities at Hundens Park

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can

Employee of the Month - January

Hundens Park celebrated the dedication and hard work of Admin Assistant, Claire Bott, our well-deserved Employee of the Month for January.

Claire has worked tirelessly to help out whilst the home has been without an Administrator; she has even faced her fear of minute-taking. Claire’s contribution has made all of the difference!

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning here at Hundens - and it was a huge success! There was plenty of cake, tea and, of course, coffee for everyone to enjoy.

Summer Fayre

We held our Summer Fayre on Saturday 6th August to raise funds for residents. The Fayre was well attended and proved to be a roaring success, partly due to the wonderful weather we had.

Families and residents had a "fantastic time", especially enjoying the ice cream van, which was on site.

Police, who visited to show off their police car, said they would come back any time. The firemen and their engine were also a big hit (unfortunately, they got an emergency call and had to leave); and the Air Ambulance raised some much-needed funds for the great work that they do too.

Stalls included: face painting, craft and homemade gifts, tombola, bric-a-brac, a photo booth and a cake stall. There were games to keep the children entertained and many prizes to be won.

Activities Coordinator, Deborah, would like to thank everyone for coming and all the volunteers who helped to raise in excess of £325 for the residents fund.

Extra special thanks goes to Annie Payne, our youngest volunteer, at just 6 years old; she kept everyone organised and ran the lucky dip stall.
